The following excerpt is from the company's SEC filing.
Houston, Texas — February 24, 2021 — Oasis Midstream Partners LP (Nasdaq: OMP) (the “Partnership” or “OMP”) today announced financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020 and updated its 2021 outlook.
2020 Highlights:
Net income was $69.3MM and net cash from operating activities was $47.2MM in 4Q20.
Exceeded high-end of 4Q20 Adjusted EBITDA guidance. 4Q20 Adjusted EBITDA
was $52.1MM and net Adjusted EBITDA
to the Partnership was $34.9MM.
Distributable Cash Flow (“DCF”) was $30.8MM in 4Q20
, resulting in distribution coverage of 1.6x.
Free Cash Flow (“FCF”) was $9.9MM in 4Q20
CapEx net to OMP totaled $19.3MM in 2020, lower than CapEx guidance.
Default interest charges previously incurred permanently waived (see “Waiver and Forbearance Agreement” below).
Declared quarterly cash distribution of $0.54 per unit.
Gas capture from Oasis Petroleum volumes in Wild Basin was approximately 98% in 2020.
Non-GAAP financial measure. See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below for definitions of all non-GAAP financial measures included herein and reconciliations to the most directly comparable measures under United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”).
Chief Executive Officer, Taylor Reid, commented, “Oasis Midstream Partners had a solid fourth quarter as an increase in third party volumes and continued cost control drove strong financial performance. Additionally, capital spending fell below the low-end of our forecast as the OMP team continues to manage costs and spending exceptionally well to maximize margins and free cash generation. In addition, OMP declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.54 per unit and will continue to monitor market conditions and adjust its operational and financial strategy as appropriate. As we look to 2021, OMP is taking a prudent approach to capital spending designed to accommodate activity levels of our sponsor.”
South Nesson Project Dedication
Oasis Petroleum has approved an expansion of its dedication to OMP in South Nesson to now include crude oil and produced water services. OMP received the dedication for natural gas gathering and processing, as well as gas lift supply in 2019, and OMP expects volumes under each service offering to flow in 2022. South Nesson is located between Johnson’s Corner and OMP’s gas plant complex and is one of Oasis Petroleum’s top operating areas. As part of the arrangement, Oasis Petroleum agreed to assign to Bighorn DevCo, which is 100% owned by OMP, certain assets in Bobcat DevCo specifically built to support both existing third party customers in South Nesson and future development for Oasis Petroleum. Bighorn DevCo expects 2021 capital expenditures (“CapEx”) for South Nesson to range between $40 million and $44 million, including the reimbursement to Oasis Petroleum of its investment in certain assets already constructed by Bobcat DevCo. All future assets for the South Nesson project will be built at Bighorn DevCo and all future revenue from Oasis Petroleum and third parties in South Nesson will accrue to Bighorn DevCo. OMP expects to achieve a 2x build multiple on these assets and anticipates solid year-over-year EBITDA growth in Bighorn DevCo in 2022.

2021 Highlights
Oasis Petroleum continues to complete wells in OMP dedicated areas including Wild Basin, Indian Hills, and the Delaware in 2021.
2021 Gross DevCo EBITDA is expected to slightly decline compared to 2020 as OMP’s sponsor curtailed activity through 2020, into early 2021 and will gradually ramp volumes through 2021.
Adjusted EBITDA attributable to OMP of approximately $137MM – $146MM in 2021 (net of public company expenses).
1Q21 Adjusted EBITDA attributable to OMP is expected to approximate $34MM – $36MM.
2021 cash public company expenses of approximately $3MM – $3.5MM.
Maintenance CapEx of approximately 7% – 8% of Adjusted EBITDA, which is included in the total CapEx estimate above.

As of December 31, 2020, OMP had cash and cash equivalents of $5.1 million and $450.0 million of borrowings outstanding under its revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Credit Facility” or “RCF”) with an unused borrowing capacity of $125.0 million.

Capital expenditures
OMP Operating
(1) Negative amount reflects differences between the estimated capital expenditures accrued in a reporting period and actual capital expenditures recognized in a subsequent reporting period.
(2) Amounts represent capitalized interest related to borrowings under the RCF.
In the second quarter of 2020, the Partnership identified that a Control Agreement (as defined in the Revolving Credit Facility) had not been executed for a certain bank account before the account was initially funded with cash, which represented an event of default. In May 2020, the Partnership executed a Control Agreement with respect to the bank account, thereby completing the documentation required under the Revolving Credit Facility. On September 29, 2020, the Partnership executed a Waiver, Discharge and Forgiveness Agreement and Forbearance Extension (the “Waiver and Forbearance Agreement”) to permanently waive payment of additional interest of $28.0 million owed arising from this event of default (“Specified Default Interest”). Such conditions were satisfied on November 19, 2020 and payment of Specified Default Interest was permanently waived. There were no impacts to the Partnership’s compliance with the financial covenants contained in its credit agreement during this time.
Quarterly Distribution
On February 24, 2021, the board of directors of the General Partner declared the quarterly distribution for the fourth quarter of 2020 of $0.54 per unit. In addition, the General Partner will receive a cash distribution of $1.0 million attributable to the incentive distribution rights related to earnings for the fourth quarter of 2020. These distributions will be payable on March 18, 2021 to unitholders of record as of March 8, 2021. Upon payment of the fourth quarter cash distribution, the subordination period will expire and the requirements under the partnership agreement for the conversion of all outstanding subordinated units is expected to be satisfied. As a result, on March 19, 2021, all 13,750,000 subordinated units, which are currently owned entirely by Oasis Petroleum, will be converted into common units on a one-for-one basis and thereafter will participate on terms equal with all other common units in distributions from available cash.
The board of directors of our General Partner may change our cash distribution policy at any time, and we do not have a legal or contractual obligation to pay cash distributions quarterly or on any other basis or at our minimum quarterly distribution rate.
Qualified Notice
This release is intended to be a qualified notice under Treasury Regulation Section 1.1446-4(b). Brokers and nominees should treat one hundred percent (100.0%) of the Partnership’s distributions to non-U.S. investors as being attributable to income that is effectively connected with a United States trade or business. Accordingly, the Partnership’s distributions to non-U.S. investors are subject to federal income tax withholding at the highest applicable effective tax rate.

Cash Interest
Cash Interest is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure that is used by management and external users of the Partnership’s financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies. The Partnership defines Cash Interest as interest expense plus capitalized interest less amortization of deferred financing costs included in interest expense. Cash Interest is not a measure of interest expense as determined by GAAP. Management believes that the presentation of Cash Interest provides useful additional information to investors and analysts for assessing the interest charges incurred on our debt, excluding non-cash amortization, and our ability to maintain compliance with our debt covenants.
The following table presents a reconciliation of the GAAP financial measure of interest expense, net of capitalized interest, to the non-GAAP financial measure of Cash Interest for the periods presented:

Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure that is used by management and external users of the Partnership’s financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies. The Partnership defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest expense (net of capitalized interest), income taxes, depreciation, amortization, equity-based compensation expenses and other similar non-cash adjustments. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to net income, net cash provided by operating activities or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. Management believes that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA provides information useful to investors and analysts for assessing the Partnership’s results of operations, financial performance and its ability to generate cash from its business operations without regard to its financing methods or capital structure, coupled with the Partnership’s ability to maintain compliance with its debt covenants. The GAAP measures most directly comparable to Adjusted EBITDA are net income and net cash provided by operating activities.
Distributable Cash Flow (“DCF”) and Free Cash Flow (“FCF”)
DCF and FCF are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures that are used by management and external users of the Partnership’s financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies. The Partnership defines DCF as Adjusted EBITDA attributable to the Partnership less Cash Interest attributable to the Partnership and maintenance capital expenditures attributable to the Partnership. The Partnership defines FCF as DCF less expansion capital expenditures attributable to the Partnership and unitholder distributions. DCF and FCF should not be considered alternatives to net income, net cash provided by operating activities or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. Management believes that the presentation of DCF and FCF provide information useful to investors and analysts for assessing the Partnership’s results of operations, financial performance and ability to generate cash from its business operations without regard to its financing methods or capital structure, coupled with the Partnerships ability to make distributions to its unitholders. The GAAP measures most directly comparable to DCF and FCF are net income and net cash provided by operating activities.
